I predicted that I'd cross first then run back to get everyone else. They all laughed and thought it was a joke! It was!
Kurt Bestor, who did a good job keeping 1800 women behind the starting line, told us when to go...and we were off! (Kurt's Christmas CD was in our goody bag at the end of the race!)
Shot U Photography was there taking pictures. I have posted the pictures in the order of how the 4 of us finished the race.
This is Jeanette on the left, 24 years old, student at the U, booking it up the hill. She came in first in her age group! Go, Jeanette!
Next to cross the finish line is Candice, (in the gray pants) mother of 4, with pulled ligaments in her foot. She had more than mellow music on that iPod! She's so competetive!
Camille, single mom of 2, and one of the Chevy Moms, crossed the finish line next! By the way, you can catch Camille on Channel 2 early morning news on Monday.
Last is the best of all the game, right? I really hesitated posting this picture, but I guess that's how I look during a race. I've decided that the shirts from LYB races won't ever fit me. It's a good thing they were long sleeved this year, I just tied it around my waist.
OK, so I was slow BUT I jogged all the way, without walking (well maybe 40 steps were walking steps)! There were 50 women in my age group and I was 4th! I think all the others were walkers.
My co-worker gave me one of these Emergen-C packets to mix in water. Do you think that's what kept me going or is that what made me jog slowly?
Came home and worked in the yard. We have 3 apple trees in our back yard. One Red Delicious, one Roman Beauty and one Golden Delicious. We picked ALL the apples this afternoon. This is what we got off the Red and Rome trees. THAT'S IT!! 5 APPLES!
This was the harvest from the Golden. 11 buckets! That doesn't count the 8 buckets of unacceptable apples we picked up off the ground today or the ones that the birds and worms devoured.
Loaded some of them in the back of Bessie and spent 3 hours delivering them to family.
I'm tired tonight but thinking of running another 5K soon and picking up the pace. Any suggestions?
